Man Utd midfielder Pearson opens season account for Barnsley

Manchester United loanee Ben Pearson scored his first goal of the season for Barnsley to help the Tykes to a 2-0 win over Gillingham in League One action on Saturday.


Pearson opened the scoring in the 18th minute when he was the first to react to a botched clearance from a Barnsley free-kick, before driving a low right-footed shot from outside the penalty area into the bottom corner.


Pearson is in his second loan spell with Barnsley, having made 22 appearances for the Tykes last campaign.

Barnsley currently sit eighth on the tier three table.
